  1. I picked up a new 3" inch rage system recently in NZ via my tuner so definitely still possible to find something local? It was in the same realms of an HKS exhaust in terms of dollars as well but i also just prefer the mild steel set up vs stainless etc.
  2. Have a siamese dump pipe (2.5") if you're interested? i'm in Auckland though.
  3. Hey all, Probably a dumb question but sick of buying second hand ones that die. Any recommendations for a brand new starter motor in central auckland for a 5 speed (bc5)? Do you just rely on old Ripco/Super cheap ? or is there somewhere smarter for this type of gear. Cheers
  4. Yeah have seen a few people say that! Going to wait until i can get the rs up on a hoist tbh. getting sick of rolling around on the ground with no light haha
  5. Nice, i did assume that was the case ( i noticed from a trip to pick a part that the linkage did change slightly in the gc/gf chassis over the years too. I picked up a full v7 wrx shifter and linkage et (new bushes too) on the cheap so im going to run with that (and hope it fits....)

    Bonnet Latch

    That is the end objective.

    Bonnet Latch

    Possibly a really dumb question but having issues with my bonnet staying locked when on the motorway and my mechanic mentioned it might be a good idea to swap latches just as a check the current one isn't just worn out (30 years old now...). When bolting in the latch on the bumper should i be pushing the latch as far up or as far down as i can (if that makes sense haha). Cheers
  8. I've got 850cc fiveoh side feeds in my RS and haven't had any issues (got them cheap asf). Its still on a base tune on the link but idle is still smooth (runs a bit rich though). Getting it on the dyno once back from panelbeaters but no complaints/reservations from my tuner at this stage at least. His commen was the new ECUs (G4+ etc) are sufficiently modern enough to deal with bigger side feeds if i wanted to stick with them
  9. Does it blow hot consistently? If you try bleeding again, just check that the heater hoses are getting hot as well during the process. i had that issue once in getting rid of an airlock
  10. Do your heater hoses warm up as the car comes up to temp?
  11. Rust in the floor of the RA so looks like my cert is gonna be a *tad* more expense then I had hoped🙃
  12. Ah, i mightve misread your initial post. I actually have a set of v5 rear hubs that fit the 2 pot rear caliper - i tried to fit them to my BC but they wouldnt fit the rear end so im guessing they are r180 ones. That might sort out your dogbone adapter issue if you want to move away from that.
  13. An option for the rears would be to try to get the r160 nz new wrx hubs that came with 2 pots. DBA then do a rear disc that suits the brembo rears without doing anything dodgy to the handbrake.
  14. Ah thats good to know. I think i'll just try to work with a later gc8 one or be/bh linkage rather than look for anything newer just incase.
  15. Cheers, your comment around the bf5 is interesting. Would it depend on the actual gearbox in the car as well? like i haven't got the original RS box for sure.
